I updated an SPF record a month ago, and it has yet to publish

I added a TXT record over a month ago, which I was under the impression would resolve an ongoing email encryption problem I’ve been having that essentially flags my encryption service as ‘spoofing’ my email. I am being routed to spam and it is affecting client communications. Please help.

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community.

Please share your domain name so we can look up the relevant DNS records.


cameron-downing . com

Thank you for sharing. I confirm that you have no SPF record being returned for the domain. Can you share a screenshot of your TXT record from the DNS management section of your Cloudflare dashboard?


Thank you for asking.

I checked recently, and I do see the TXT record with SPF value as follows using DIG and online tools:

cameron-downing.com. IN TXT
cameron-downing.com. 300 IN TXT "v=spf1 include:ersmtp.com -all"

Seems like it’s added and propagated successfully now.

In the meantime, may I ask if you changed anything under the DNS tab of Cloudflare dashboard for your domain anme, like added a DNS record or recently modified it? :thinking:

Could you double-check and test if your e-mail is working now?

May I ask if you’re using eZoic ads for example, or some other 3rd-party integrator / hosting partner / differet kind of a setup of Cloudflare (as the record might be or was removed suddenly)? :thinking:
